When Prophet Mohammed (PBUH)
arrived in Madinah,
the first act he performed was
the building of a Masjid.
From the events of the emigration to Madinah, it is clear that the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) never stayed in any place unless he built a Masjid therein for the believers to gather. He built the Qubaa Masjid when he stayed there for four days. He also built a Masjid between Qubaa and Madinah when the time of the Friday prayer came while he was in the residence of the tribe of Salimibn Auf in the heart of Ranonaa’ Valley.
When he arrived in Madinah, the first act he performed was the building of a Masjid.
This indicates the importance of a Masjids in Islam. All acts of worship (ibadah) in Islam are for the purification of the soul, refinement of morals, and strengthening the ties of mutual cooperation among the Muslims. The congregational prayers and the Friday and Eid prayers are strong examples of the nature of the Muslim community and in the unity of their opinions, goals and cooperation in achieving righteousness and in fearing Allah.
Thus, if this is the case with the acts of worship, it is no wonder that Masjids carry a great social and spiritual place in the lives of the Muslims. The Masjid is the thing which unites them and their efforts. It refines their souls and awakens their minds and hearts. It solves their problems. The Masjid shows their strength and cohesiveness.
Is it not true that Abu Bakr (RA), `Umar (RA), `Uthman (RA), Ali (RA), Khalid (RA), Saad (RA), Abu Ubaidah (RA), and their likes from among the greats of Islamic history were but the students of the Muhammad’s school which was headquartered in the Prophet’s Masjid ?
Another special characteristic of the Masjid in Islam is that the word of truth emanates from them every week on the tongues of the preachers. The topic may be about forbidding evil and enjoining good or an invitation to do some good, an awakening for the heedless, an invitation to assembly, objections to a wrongdoer, or a warning about a tyrant.
If we see the Masjids crippled and not playing their great role today, it is due to the fault of some of their paid preachers, mercenaries or the ignorant. On the day when the strong leaders and the scholars of Islamic legislation, sincere to Allah and His Messenger, give advice to the leaders and common Muslims and ascend the pulpits and lead the prayers, on that day the Masjid will return to its leading position in the Islamic society. The Masjid will return to its role in raising real men, graduating heroes, reforming corruption, fighting evil and building society upon the foundation of fearing and pleasing Allah alone. We hope for this to take place, Allah willing, when the vanguard of our purified, believing youths, who are educated with Allah’s religion and who behave with the Prophet’s Mohammed (PBUH) manners, occupy the pulpits and the rooms of the Masjids.

Surat At-Tawbah 9:18
அல்லாஹ்வின் மஸ்ஜிதுகளைப் பரிபாலனம் செய்யக்கூடியவர்கள், அல்லாஹ்வின் மீதும் இறுதிநாள் மீதும் ஈமான் கொண்டு தொழுகையைக் கடைப்பிடித்து ஜக்காத்தை (முறையாகக்) கொடுத்து அல்லாஹ்வைத் தவிர வேறெதற்கும் அஞ்சாதவர்கள்தாம் - இத்தகையவர்கதாம் நிச்சயமாக நேர் வழி பெற்றவர்களில் ஆவார்கள்.
